Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandfather's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Im not expecting a radical change to the offense in terms of position revisions. It would be crazy to try to fit all our offensive players into positions theyre unfamiliar with or arent built to play. I DO hope for a more cohesive passing game but that will depend on player development as opposed to scheme changes.

None of the above. If Herman is successful at UT no way they let him go. Dabo will be Sabans heir, hes a Bama grad and former player. And we wont hire anyone who doesnt have ties to OSU. Last time we hired someone who didnt have ties we got the wonderful era of John Cooper. No thanks.

I had heard parts of Pigeon Forge were destroyed by the recent forest fires so be sure to do your homework on the extent of the damage before setting your itinerary in stone. My dad goes there often and he said some of his favorite places were gone.

Edit: I was also the ski lift was also destroyed but maybe they have rebuilt it already. Find out for yourself.

First time I ever heard White Zombie (Thunder Kiss) my reaction was "Good lord what has God wrought?!" Became a Zombie-head on the spot. One of my personal faves is a song called "Blood Milk and Sky" from Astro Creep 2000. It conjures an image of something unholy and full of naked things in my mind.

The wall isn't the fact were getting so many top ranked Ohio players it's the fact our top ranked guys aren't going to TTUN like they used to.

Urban is 61-6. I'd say his recruiting strategy is pretty damned good.

Comment 14 Jan 2017
Im confused. Opposing teams are negatively recruiting us by crapping on the fact we are giving players real competition to get better and a realistic shot at the NFL and kids are buying it? How is that going to help these kids? Whos to blame here? The Nebraska coaches or the family of players who actually believe that we dont develop NFL talent? Good luck kid. Youre gonna need it with support like that.

My only concern with this is there being more to the story and it rears its ugly head in late august after camp and Wilson is forced to leave or is terminated and were out an OC to start the year. Or the news breaks midseason and it becomes a huge distraction. Lets hope the OSU AD did his due diligence. If they didnt the wheels very well could come off for Urban.

Everything thats been happening since the Fiesta Bowl is a direct result of this. Some may hate it. Urban does nothing it just pisses off everyone and they hate him more. He really cant win, which is funny being that hes 61-6.

All the JT Barrett needs to transfer threads.

I'm looking forward to March Madness as I usually hit Vegas the weekend of the Final Four.

I'm looking forward to the Spring Game and putting the end of the 2016 season behind us finally.

I'm looking forward to visiting more craft breweries this year.

And I am looking forward to seeing my 3-year old nephew in May.

And oh yeah, looking forward to the opener vs. IU.

I think it's possible Noah's leg injury last year cost him a step or two and he's recognizing that its hampering him. If he hurts that leg again his career could be over. Its entirely possible that he was told he will be a higher draft pick than he originally thought and chose to jump at the cash while he was healthy.

And what Hodge said above is also entirely possible as well. The coaches want more speed and athleticism out wide and Noah might be slipping in the depth chart. It's a shame because everyone remembers Devin Smith slipping on the depth chart but he used it as motivation to get better. Noah shouldn't run from competition if that is in fact what happened. We probably will never know for sure though.
